Leslie Esdaile (L.A. Banks): “Love Notes” ~ #3
“Because you are not scared to admit out loud that you’re afraid.
Or to ask questions… and because you know that your husband is in pain, you will go to him and not threaten his ability to provide with words that cut and burn in another’s mind forever, until death do you apart.
Because you will tell him that its right for him to change profession and that it is not his fault that the shoe he first brought to your marriage no longer fits.
You’ll say that you don’t care what your parents think , or people think, and material things can always be replaced, but not him.
And because you will have the patience and wisdom to understand everything that he is afraid of, you’ll kiss his boo-boos instead of rubbing salt in the wounds of his failures…”

Leslie Esdaile (L.A. Banks): “Love Notes” ~ #2
“And how do you explain to your wife that you don’t have all the answers, and that you might not know what you are doing, and that you are afraid you are going to fail?
How do you admit that you are most afraid that, one day, she’ll walk - and replace you with an educated, professor-type guy, who shares her same interests, schedule, and the way she was used to living, especially when all of your friends, your business associates, even your own damned brother, are all just waiting for you to mess up so they can have a shot at taking her away from you?
How do you look the woman you love in her eyes and tell her that?”

Leslie Esdaile (L.A. Banks): “Love Notes” ~ #1
“You know what you are to me? … You are the most important thing in my life.
You are my friend… my lover… my family… the one I trust, the one I fight with, the one I laugh with, the one I trust to enter my body the one I can fall back against with my eyes closed.
You are simply part of me. That’s what I mean, Anthony, when I say I love you.”

Movie Night with My Daughter: @JumpingTheBroom
Yesterday, my teenage daughter asked me to take her to see your movie: @JumpingTheBroom
She loved it!
This story of family and love was a great reminder of what is possible with faith. As a divorced father of two very smart and impressionable kids, I am resolute in my effort to make sure that they are always exposed to all of the possibilities of life … including the belief that you can fall in love get married and stay together.
I constantly worry if I am doing enough to let them know that the path that I walk is my own, and that their journey is their own. I tell them that the possibility of love and happiness will be there for both of them when the time is right.
Your movie made my daughter smile and laugh! To see her eyes light up and talk about the day she gets married warms my heart, but also reminded me I’m not ready to be the Father of the Bride! ;-)
I just wanted to say thanks to you and all of the folks who came together to create such a wonderful project. It is clear it is both a labor of love and faith!
Happy Mother’s Day: My Mama
As I face another Mother’s Day without my mother who died in October of 1996, my head fills with memories of her. My mother was my first political consultant, and the light of my life. She set the tone for my life and my dreams. She made the sacrifices necessary for me to achieve and reach for all of my dreams.
